Check thoroughly the battery cables..remove and clean/tighten ground especially...i'm talking about the other end of the cables especially,as well as at battery.....charge battery out of car fully and then retry ..with jump assist if necessary..then you can use lighted current probe to determine parasitic electrical draw and health of powers/grounds after getting it started to find cause

06 pontiac grand prix wont start no clicking when you turn the key over even jump starting the battery, has dash lights & radio & parking lights. battery tested good. put a used starter & altinator on


Used parts such as starters and altinators don't last. It might **** but it sounds like you need to buy a new starter,altinator, and battery. Or just start with buying one at a time.

Battery seems to be ok but engine will not start. I hear a chattering sound (somewhat like an automatic rifle) after the battery first tries to start the engine. I do not think the battery is bad - -...


Many times the battery can run everything but not start the car. If you can jump start it and it starts then it is the battery. Go to one of the autoparts stores, like advanced, and get it checked to confirm. They will also usually change it for you while you are there if it is bad.

I can not find the neutral safety switch on a 2000 buick park ave


Any chance your vehicles have a security/alarm system. Disconnecting battery on some, will arm it sometimes & not allow it to run. Using key to unlock door, on driver & passenger side have been known to work on some vehicles, but if not, a call to dealer should help.
